I wanted to write something about the football player Colin Kaepernick who doesn’t want to stand for the National Anthem. I’m not big on flags or anthems. But he really is a goofball.
I don’t want to get into all the race stuff here. America in general is not a “racist” country, especially given that Americans elected a black President in 2008 and reelected him in 2012. Obama couldn’t have gotten elected without the majority of white voters.
And I don’t want to get into the police stuff here. I think there would be fewer incidents of police harassing innocent black people if we ended the drug war. That’s the main cause of many of America’s social and criminal justice issues now. You’ll never stop people from getting their drugs if they want them. America was not meant to be a police state, or a nanny state.
Kaepernick was also shown wearing a shirt with pictures of Fidel Castro, while protesting America’s “oppression” of black people. Fidel Castro killed thousands of people while administering over a totalitarian regime of communist … “oppression.”
Meanwhile, back in capitalist America, Colin Kaepernick is making millions of dollars as a football player, and now as a Nike advertiser. Cognitive dissonance here?
Anyway, I just think Kaepernick is a goofball, with wild and crazy hair. He actually has more hair than Linc on “The Mod Squad.” So, he cracks me up.
And if he is so against “oppression,” then why is he a football player? They keep bashing each other’s heads and getting concussions. The whole thing is nuts.
